Jordan Reynolds 24, used his body as a human shield to protect his six-year-old nephew from being hit by a car at a Christmas lights switch-on.

Reynolds was hailed a hero for saving the life of nephew Ashton in the incident at a shopping centre in Newport.

Both Uncle and nephew were crossing the road to see the city’s Christmas lights being turned on when the excited boy didn’t see an approaching car.

But Jordan turned his body to take the main impact as both were hit – with the uncle smashing into the windscreen.
His family say his courage saved Ashton from “certain death” in the crash on Friday night.

Ashton’s dad Grant said:

“My brother pushed him away so he hit the car first. “All he can remember was he was going to cross and a car came from behind and hit him.

“Doctors say Ashton may not have been here if it was not him.”
Jordan suffered a fractured cheekbone, a broken arm, and a broken hip while Ashton escaped with grazes and bruising to his face and knee, reports Wales Online.

Jordan and his nephew were due to meet up with his twin brother Grant, 24, for the festive event and to watch the fireworks – a yearly ritual.

The car was left with a smashed windscreen from the impact of hitting Jordan who has been recovering at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport.
Ashton has since returned home – and cried when he saw his uncle’s face in the hospital on Thursday night.


Grant believes the layout of the site, with a temporary barrier between the crossing and the entrance to the car park, means there is “another accident waiting to happen”.
